The Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Movie is basically a collection of Warner Bros. short cartoon features, "starring" the likes of Daffy Duck, Porky Pig and Wile.E.Coyote. These animations are interspersed by Bugs Bunny reminiscing on past events and providing links between the individual animations which are otherwise unconnected. The Road Runner feature at the end consists of sketches from various RR separates (well it does in the 78-minute version anyway).
It's classic encounters of the funniest kind!

I guess in a way I *am* an unusual rabbit on account of, uh... instead of having hundreds of children, like your ordinary run-of-the-mill rabbit, I had several fathers, fathers with odd names, like Tex Avery... uh, Friz Freleng... Chuck Jones... and Bob McKimson, the ones who directed most of me pictures. Fathers like ...
At the end, after the showing of the constellations of Wile E. Coyote and Road Runner, they show the traditional "That's All Folks!" card again. Bugs again appears but this time pushes the little quotation marks at the end back and the whole thing erases itself and the quotation marks scream. It rewrites itself saying "That's Not Quite All Folks!" Bugs Bunny pulls the card showing the credits. See more
